"This is the original copy in Mr. Garrick's writing ... The parts copied for the performers are in a different handwriting. The words of the songs are omitted. Genest says, vol. 5, p. 256, that the Drury Lane manuscript was burnt with the theatre in 1809."--Barton collection catalog

An inscription on the verso of the front free endpaper reads, "Bought by J. Britton at the sale of Mr. Waldron's books."
